Aldous Harding has a new album coming out soon – she’s new to me but very good indeed.
Looks a bit like PJ Harvey but for me a better voice. This is her live but her videos are all goodMay 2, 2017 at 17:50 #26724

Christoph Berg – Conversations
very beautiful new “meo-classical” album on Sonic Pieces, shouldanyone interested in Max Richter or Johann Johansson, or indeed to everyone else too….May 20, 2017 at 13:07 #26742
After an eight year hiatus, Do Make Say Think just released their best album yet. The deluxe LP is beautifully packaged and the sound quality is top notch.

Yazz Ahmed. RIYL Kamasi Washington, John Zorn’s Masada, and Miles Davis’s soundtrack to “Ascenseur pour l’échafaud.”May 27, 2017 at 00:20 #26760
The new Slowdive album is such a pleasant surprise.May 30, 2017 at 15:00 #26768
The Slowdive album is very good – enjoying it a lot. Do Make Say Think was a good shout – I would have missed that album. I like a bit of “post rock” but there’s so much of it – hard to sot wheat from chaff.May 30, 2017 at 22:58 #26769
loving the Slowdives album too
while reading about it, I stumbled across this “supergroup” album Rachel Goswell made last year with one member of Mogwai and one member of Editors under the name of Minor Victories. Enjoying that a lot, too.
There is also a companion album called Minor Victories – Orchestral Versions which recasts the songs in a neoclassical setting.

Yeah, I think I put up the minor victories track in last year’s thread. Continuing to be a great album. The orchestral version album is great as well (much more Reich/Cage than I was expecting).
New track from Lo Moon. Sounds like a long lost b-side to Talk Talk’s Spirit of Eden.June 12, 2017 at 00:37 #26788
Yes, Slowdive’s new album (after 22 years) is very good. I listen to them since the 90s but I never had the opportunity to see them live (I only saw a Neil Halstead’s intimate gig). I will see them for the first time this year in Amsterdam. Their EPs, demos and soundtrack (“I am the elephant, U are the mouse”) are all beautiful.June 12, 2017 at 07:37 #26791
The new Fleet Foxes album Crack-Up is awesome … difficult to get into at first, but after a few listens a great continuation of their work – i really love this !June 18, 2017 at 22:45 #26819July 20, 2017 at 17:11 #26864
